 WMH2175XVS Microwave Ratings
Price Per
Cu. Ft.
 The Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) per cubic foot of microwave area is $205. This is priced about average.
Premium Features Considering only those functions and capabilities that really make a difference, this microwave has an average number of premium features when compared with other new microwave designs.
Power This Whirlpool microwave oven can generate up to 1000 watts of cooking energy. This is about average power with a standard level of heating watts.
Magnetron Warranty The magnetron warranty is good for 1 year. Compared to other manufacturers, this microwave has a magnetron limited warranty with shorter than average duration.
User Ratings Rated 1.8 of 5 stars by 10 users from retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Sears, and others. Compared to other user reviews of new microwaves, this appliance is rated lower than average.
Bake / Roast Standard microwave without convection heating. You can't brown, bake, or roast dishes and meats like a regular oven.
Grill / Broil Standard microwave without a grilling or broiling element. You can't grill or broil meats such as steaks, hamburgers, or chicken wings.
Staged Cooking Can be programmed with a series of power levels and heating times that you perform frequently. Allows you to automatically cook your favorite dishes without constant monitoring so you can perform other tasks.
Sensor Cooking Uses sensors to monitor humidity levels and automatically determines the appropriate power and time required to cook, reheat, or defrost selected foods.
Even Cooking Does not use special technology to help ensure that dishes are cooked evenly. Most standard microwaves do an adequate job, especially at higher power settings. Moving dishes or stirring periodically is helpful.
Keep Warm Dishes can be automatically kept warm after they are done cooking. A preprogrammed setting employs low-power microwaves or sometimes uses a heat lamp to keep foods warm.
Non-Stick Interior Does not have a special non-stick interior that makes clean-up easier. Splattered foods or drinks take a little more effort to wipe off, especially if you let them dry and harden for a period of time.
Turntable Turntable is not large enough to rotate a standard 9 x 13 inch baking dish. If you just primarily heat-up food on a plate or small casserole dish, then this smaller size turntable should be adequate.
Stainless Steel Stainless steel microwave exterior. Stainless is long-lasting, easy to clean-up, and is currently the most popular material for kitchen appliances. Provides a sleek, modern look.
Size Above average capacity with 1.7 cu. ft. of interior space. More room may be important if you have three or more people in your household, or you like to quickly heat larger dishes for parties and entertaining.
